Oppenweiler Coat of Arms

The golden (= yellow) shield is divided by a red bend, which is superimposed by three golden (= yellow) axes.
The arms display the arms of the Margraves of Baden plus the axes, which had been taken from the arms of the Barons of Sturmfeder, who lived in Oppenweiler from 1288 until 1901. The Margraves of Baden owned Reichenberg until 1297 and the fiefdom over Oppenweiler until the 14th century.

Banner and coat of arms were approved on 14 November 1955 by Minister of Interior of Baden-Württemberg, published in GABl 525/1955.
